meet your hosts

Hi, there! We’re Alanna of Play.Learn.Thrive. and Shari of Navigating Parenthood! We’re both moms to 3+ kids and felt there was a gap in the information parents receive from pregnancy to the early years of childhood. No one know everything or all the right things to do, so we’ve enlisted the expertise of others to speak on all the subjects parents worry about, or maybe didn’t even know was a thing!
